Subject: Great show - Phil actually present in the mix!
High energy show from a great summer tour. The fact that I can hear Phil's meandering bass lines clearly on this SBD really adds to my enjoyment of the show. I can't help but wonder if more folks would like these early 80's shows if more SBDs from the period had better bass in the mix.

I wish wish wish that there were Matrix copies of the late summer 1980 shows....they are almost all killer shows (especially 8/30/1980), but the SBD copies makes Brent's ultra-annoying toy-like keyboards way too forward in the mix (the sound of the hall mitigates this problem), while all of the aud tapes, with few exceptions (Mississippi River Fest, for example)are way too boomy. Nevertheless, we have what we have, and this SBD stands tall among the others. 4 stars for performance, 4 for recording (both would get 5 stars if it weren't for Brent's incessent twinking).
Subject: Bass: great,
Lesh: killin'! Phil's all over it from the get-go, I've never heard a Half-Step like this. High energy show with lots of spectacular moments; the band is totally on.
Funky SBD, there's a slight hiss, but the mix is juicy, with good separation and high levels. Phil and Jerry turned way up. Praise Dan Healy. And those who bring this music to us online.
Subject: alabama getaway!
this is the highest energy version of this tune that i've heard, and a real surprise coming after 'around & around', i expected another 'good lovin'
rating = 3 stars, 5 for the performance, 1 for the in & out, spotty sound quality. definitely worth a listen.
Subject: Sweet show
One of my favorite shows, particularly the China-Rider sequence, and one of my favorite versions of Comes A Time. Thanks, Charlie, for posting this board version...a huge improvement over the overly-clappy balcony audience recordings posted here.
